Let’s just take a quick moment to revel in our memories of apple crumbles. If you don’t have a memory I’ll lend mine. Picture it. Suburban Maryland. The 1980’s. You know…back when it snowed when it was supposed to and half your paycheck didn’t go toward gassing up your car. Yeah…the good old days.
This was mainly a Thanksgiving offering that was passed in my family. And it was GOOD! There were buttery apples seasoned with cinnamon, cloves, ginger. Then there was the crunchy topping, which in my childhood was made out of butter and a combination of brown sugar, flour and crushed corn flakes. Mmmmmmm. What a memory!
I can’t have that anymore, of course, but, my weight loss surgery brothers and sisters, I have some good news. You, too, can have apple crumble. No, this is not a drill. No, I am not messing with you!
This has been a favorite dessert in my household since my surgery in 2008. My kids love it. My family loves it. The first time the family became aware of its yumminess they maybe loved it a bit too much. (I’m not resentful!) But the point is I think you are going to love it too. Or at least I hope so. Enjoy!
